Tiki Character Holding Shrunken Head Logo

Client:

Wayne Harvey

Description:

Logo for a gaming company called Tiki Tantrum I created of a tiki chief holding a shrunken head.

This job was perfect for me, since I love drawing tiki art so much. The client really dug the style of another tiki character I had created, so I tried my best to expand on that and make it the best one I’ve done so far. The logo is being used as the intro screen on several games and apps developed but he company.

Client Testimonial:

I’m absolutely in love with it.  Consider it a job well done!

Medusa and Sugar Skull Girl Boat Wrap

Client:

Silver City Mobile Detailing

Description:

Vinyl boat wrap of a Sugar Skull girl with tentacles for hair and Medusa on a bed or roses I created for Silver City Mobile Detailing.

This might be the most complex vinyl wrap graphic I’ve ever worked on! So much time went into the detail of every snake, and every tentacle. To make things more complex, the size of the illustration was over 10 feet long! I created the line art in Clip Studio Paint, and then colored everything as a vector in Adobe Illustrator so everything would print nice and crisp.

Woman Fighting Evil Monsters Album Cover

Client:

New Hong Kong

Description:

The band New Hong Kong hired me to illustrate their album cover for The King Makes The Rules, showing a bunch of evil monsters sparring with a young vampire hunter.

The band wanted it to be creepy but still fun, so I kept the gore to a minimum and the colors saturated. I illustrated the mummy, werewolf, zombie, and pirate skeleton in a heavy brushed ink style, trying to emulate the amazing Tales from the Crypt covers by Jack Davis. The band was really fun to work with, and the final result ended up fitting their music perfectly.

Client Testimonial:

This looks amazing and everyone loves it. We’re super excited—it turned out amazing as I knew it would.

Back when real men wore capes, we all witnessed The Ultimate Male vs The Ultimate Meatball fight in Rocky 3. For this design, I wanted to illustrate what Thunderlips’ fight poster might have looked like.

Another design I created for Hulk Hogan’s beach bar, featuring the great Andre the Giant, out-drinking the Hulkster in a drinking contest on the beach.

It’s always a fun honor to work with TWO sports icons in one design. It was a lot of fun translating the pro wrestlers into a more fun, cartoony style.

The award-winning charter school, the Ron Clark Academy, hired me to create this apparel design based on one of their school mascots, the wolf.

Nothing about the RCA is ordinary, so they wanted a school t-shirt that looked tough and ferocious, with a lot of detail and color. This design was set up for limited color silk-screening.

Moonshine Bandits

Description:

T-shirt design and poster I was hired to create for the popular band, the Moonshine Bandits, where I was asked to draw the band members as skeletons driving their iconic off-road limo.

We chose to take a Big Daddy Roth approach, and make the characters larger than life so we could really focus on the small characteristics (such as the tattoos, hair-styles, etc) that make them identifiable. Set up for silk-screening with under six colors.

Client Testimonial:

I was hired to create this logo for the outdoor sports outfitter, H20 Sports Zone, of a tiki chief riding a paddle board on the ocean.

I love working with tiki characters and making them do fun things – paddle-boarding has become hugely popular, so it was fun to draw him doing that. The logo was created both in color and black and white so that it would be useable in many different applications.

This big green dog character ripping through a box I drew is for a logo design for the distribution service, Box Busters.

The client wanted something over-the-top and in-your-face to appeal to his customer base, who are anything but subtle. I drew a caricature of his pet. The business is cannabis themed, but we had to find creative ways to not exploit that theme too much.

A La Carte Album Cover

Client:

A La Carte

Description:

Album cover design I created for the band A La Carte showing a disgusting restaurant with eyeballs, fingers, brains, rats, and even a toilet.

The band wanted me to create an album cover with a lot of gross details, as if a fine restaurant was being run by a deranged cannibal. The illustration covers the front and back cover. I also had the privilege to design the band’s logo as well, which was made to look like a goopy, drippy mess.

Client Testimonial:

It was a pleasure to work with an organization that does so many great things in their fight against cancer. I had a lot of fun putting a little spin on my beach graphics, by illustrating a lake beach in the mountains. This design was set up for full-color, so I could really go nuts.

This was a really fun series of apparel designs I illustrated for new outdoor lifestyle brand called Camel Toes, featuring an athletic camel mascot interacting with his female fans in different sports and fitness situations.

We tried to squeeze in as much activity, detail, and characters into each design that we could. The mascot himself was carefully designed in a way that made it easy to draw him doing all sorts of different activities. I also designed the logo and text style for the brand.

Ericsson Viking Mascots

Client:

Ericsson

Description:

The telecommunications company Ericsson hired me to design two viking mascots that they could use for internal marketing that looked like linemen with their typical set of linemen gear.

It was a fun challenge to merge the two different eras and costume styles. I designed a male and female, and layered everything in a way to make it easy to reuse the graphics for a lot of different applications for the company. We started with a series of three sketches for each mascot, to flesh out how we wanted the character to look, and what pose we wanted them in.

I designed this rabid monkey in a racing suit for a Spanish Monster Truck driver that will wrap the entire vehicle. Can’t wait to see this thing caked in mud! A lot of the competing monster trucks were using simple vector graphics, so the driver came to me to create something more detailed and with more character.

Check out this evil skull emerging from the galaxy to devour the earth, for the band called Ammannait! This is one of my favorite album covers I designed ever! I sketched a bunch of concepts that I thought the band would like ever listening to their music. This one was the simplest, but definitely the strongest. Rather than adding a lot of details, I focused more on the color scheme and a strong layout, and I think it paid off well.

So excited to be part of this great event in Vegas, and possibly meet the legend Tommy Chong!

Wu-Tang Clan Russ Bus Logo

Famous European military story C

Description:

Fun parody tribute to the Wu-Tang Clan rappers in a shoot-out. The design was for apparel and a vehicle wrap for the russefeiring tradition.  If you haven’t heard of it, basically russefeiring involves an entire class of Norwegian students renting a bus (a Russebuss), painting every inch of it with really cool street art, and then partying in it night and day for an entire month during graduation.  The different classes wear their designs ever where they go as they clash with rival classes.  I’ve done a bunch of these now, and really enjoy it.
